Hi, cannot see the pic. I am collecting Hoyas too. I dun have much space but find the Hoya and most asclepiads compact, easy to take care and do ok outside my HDB house.
Only have about 15 common Hoya species for now and hope to collect more. How many types do you have?
I m thinking of going on a trip to collect Hoyas from all over SEA soon. Saw many different types growing on roadside trees in Thailand, Malaysia, Sabah and Siem Reap during my recent trips the last few months.

Guru I googled imbricata. Looks like. But why is mine clasped like curry puffs? Isit because these are free-hanging leaves? Pictures of imbricata on-line are shown growing clasped to the trunk of trees. Mr fren who gave the cuttings say he saw it growing all clasped in vines and like a trailing plant in a hanging pot. I am very excited abt this. I prised open the clasped leaves and found it full of roots!

Thanks for the info. Just received one more hoya - heart-shaped leaved mottled in grey and maroon. The edges are saw toothed and very thick leaves. Unfortunately the stem very thin. I have bad experience in rooting such thin stems. Most often they dry up.

HI There

I agree with ladybird that it does look like imbricata...although it could be a slightly different varient.

Cheers

With a name like that, its most likely a hybrid as no species has a name like that. $48 for this plant seems alittle steep especially if its a hybrid.

Hoya hybrids? Very confounding. I dunno how they cross pollinate these things. They dun look like that can be pollinated at all and I have never seen the fruit. Pse share some info on this. If it is a hybrid, I m certainly not gonna spend $48 on it.

I have not personally seen the pod but there definately are hoya hybrids in the market. Cross polination is done the usual way ie stigma & stamen. Examples of hoya hybrids are Chouke (carnosa x serpens), Minibelle (carnosa x longifolia), Kaimuki (macgillivrayi x archboldiana) and Pinkie (subclava x australis).

:ranting2:/> :ranting2:/> Just when you think some plants cannot b hybrdized.......

Anyway Seana n other experts , can help ID this? The whole plant is hairy and is collected locally. Is definitely a Hoya but dunno what species. The plant is actually greyish whitem but turns a golden shade when grown in full sunlight because of the downy hair. http://i89.photobucket.com/albums/k226/hun...2/hairyHoya.jpg

A bit difficult to tell just from the leaves. Maybe if you have a pic of the blooms it would be better.

Well maybe you could change the spot you put it in...it may just do the trick for you. I use fish emulsion for my hoyas and they are blooming for me.

Thanks man, feel better with your advice. Very kind. But I cannot move the plant becoz it is fixed and have grown up, down and several round and round. Too difficult to distangle and move, might have to chop off. Which I dun want to do coz is wasted fertilizer and so much effort watering to make it grow. :hitmyself:/> Will try the fish emulsion though. Tks again.
